withering fire because obama care is not what he said it would be. he knew he was lying? >> probably. probably. but that's one of those political lies, you know. >> tonight, we will analyze the stunning situation with charles krauthammer and james carville. >>> the duration were october launch site did not provide enough time for testing? >> kristen we are focused not on monday morning quarterbacking. >> jay carney has perhaps the toughest job in the u.s.a.
. thanks for being with us. up next, a troubling number about the issue of obama care and the application. we'll explain it when we get back. we'll turn it over to the studio audience for the remainder of the program. you will hear from more americans about cancelled plans, higher premiums and what it means for you and your family as this special edition of "hannity" continues. i love having a free checked bag with my united mileageplus explorer card. i've saved $75 in checked bag fees.

here. because there was apparently, now being reported this extensive debate whether he should say that. policy advisors knew that wasn't going to happen. that these plans will have to change to meet the new minimum requirement of obama care including ones before march of 2010 which is where they're trying to draw this line now. those plans also have to -- bob job, what happens sneer are they going to have to post bone? you have a deadline where people don't get their health insurance by certain time they're going to fined. but of a website that they can't get on to get their health care. >> so the problem is there could have been -- there could be some delays in different ways to delay it but the problem with delay is that while it might help out those people who are desperate to get on to the obamacare program, the insurance companies don't want that because they want mechanism to force people to sign up. because of these risk pools. they need lots ever healthy people getting these risk pools to keep the prices down. you want some things to force people in if you elongate the period t
, you are critical of obama care because it didn't go far enough, which is like being critical of the exxon valdes because it didn't kill enough ducks. i don't understand, why do we have to demonize an industry that's made up of people with -- insurance industry, these are people that get up and go to work every day just like everybody else and they have an expertise and make very slim profit margins. these are not greedy people. >> i'm not going to defend the insurance companies, but a single pair is the stupidest thing you could ever, ever do. president obama would have loved to get single payer, a lot of liberals would have loved it but the support in the democratic caucus was not there. it's great if you're healthy, bob. if you're sick, it's a real problem because they mend out what you pay for certain services. you have unhappy doctors if you can find doctors. you have long lines because everybody enrolls -- can i finish? >> sure. >> you have long lines because everybody enrolls. the quality of care is dmv style health care. it is a terrible idea. >> this is down to one si
. there has been outrage over the sight. today it is back up and running after being taken offline overnight. engineers fixed the technical problems. democrats that backed the obama care initiative are calling the short comings unacceptable. >> i feel that they ought to take down the website until it was right. >> applications for affordable care are still ahead of sign up for president george w. bush's medicare act. president obama plans to make a stop in the pay area this month. he will visit san francisco for a national committee fundraiser. this will mark the fourth time this year that president obama visited the bay area and the 15th time he visited san francisco since taking office in 2009. still ahead, freeze tag is a popular playground game, but some parents are upset after the schools made it a policy that the kids freeze at resense. some of the bay areas brightest mind competed to make fuel efficient vehicles. >> at this time last night we were talking about very strong i love watching tv outside. and why can you move the tv out here? the wireless receiver. i got that when i switch
that scott brown was elected. he ran on being the no vote that would stop obama care with. then harry reid changed the rules and said, i can pass a bill that will change one-sixth of the u.s. economy by deeming it passed as long as i have 51 votes i good. could you undo obama care with 51 votes if republicans got control of the senate? >> perhaps. this is the danger of the conference committees where things go together on a budget. they are talking about convening a conference committee to get to compromise. what comes out can be passed sometimes with 51% vote. it makes it easier. some of us objected to the budget going unless the democrats would agree not to raise the debt ceiling through 51%. >> mm-hmm. >> part of the reason for having super majorities required was to slow things down and have more debate and to make it more difficult for one party to run rough shod over the country. >> you have a democrat in the white house. president obama won't be signing that bill soon. let me ask you about something else that's been getting attention in the news. that's you're speaking out on what y
they are being affected because their plans don't compile with obama care. they can blame insurance but obama care is causing the cancellations. >> supporters say look, the plans these people have aren't great and too basic and a lot of these people will get better plans. flip side of that is it may end up costing them more if they don't qualify for subsides, these new plans cost them more. >> that's exactly right that is what the white house is trying to say in the pitch right now is that yes, there are millions of people out there disrupted in all of this but in the end, unlike the preobama care era where they might be out of luck, in the new obama care era, at least they can go online conceivably if the website is working, buy insurance and have coverage. yes, while the benefits may be better and while there might be more coverage, they will cost more and anderson, i talked to an insurance industry representative that said that sthounlt have come as a surprise but something they knew is coming because these high detuckble plans that a lot of americans had were not going to work in the obam
is saying they are sorry for the disastrous obama carolout. she testified before congress yesterday and apologized for the web site not working and promised it can and will be fixed. when grilled about people not being able to keep their current healthcare plan as promised by the president she was left speechless. >> the millions of americans attempted to use to shop and enroll in healthcare coverage i want to apologize to you the web site has not worked as well as it should. we will not have the numbers available. we will have the numbers available mid november. we will get the numbers in mid november. jim mccann, we will have those numbers in mid november. we will also have that information available mid november as well. >> refused to give exact numbers on how many people have successfully enrolled in obama so far. she said those numbers will be released, to rue mind you once again, mid november. >> while you were sleeping a blinding dust storm leads to a blinding dust storm. 19 vehicles including cars, trucks even a mobile home were caught up. >> car after car, tr
on the commercial market a requirement for being an obama car provider. they have removed alameda alliance for health from the exchange. they say it was initially included in the roster of available insurers because it was expected to get a commercial license by october 31. but "covered california" was notified that the state didn't approve the application. it's not clear how many people signed up with alameda alliance. but those who did will be contacted and asked to pick another insurer. >>> con artists are continuing to find new ways to carry out old scams. the irs is issuing a warning about scammers pretending to be irs agents. they are calling and telling people they owe back taxes and have to pay with a prepaid debit or credit cards saying scammers use fake names and irs badge numbers, may be able to reciter social security number and spoof the irs phone number to make it appear they are calling from the irs. it's just the latest scheme to get victims to purchase prepaid cards and reveal the numbers printed on the back. once you have handed over that code, the money is as good as go
obama offering his advice, the potentially millions of people being notified their being dropped from their current insurance plan. it's time now for our sunday grow. we have scott brown. juli pace, karl rove, and evan bayh. karl, we talked about this eat great length. how much trouble is obama care? ? >> in trouble. the president's job approval rating is now tied for the lowest of his term and his disapproval rating it at his highest and the law has gotten far mar unpopular and these problems are going to continue. let's put this in perspective, the individual market is being affected, but let's remember there is about 150 million people that get insurance through their employer. 90 million are unaffected. those are self funded plans governed by risa. so there is about 15 million in the individual market, so a total of about 75 million. the department of health and human services said 20 people would lose their coverage. other estimates are as high as nearly 50% of people. that is rolling out over the next year. >> all right, the new yorker had a classic cover. you can see president
of discussion also about the black electorate being loyal to president obama, snl had fun with that this weekend. >> it's been a difficult month for the president. the most recent gal up poll puts his approval rating and perhaps the most troubling number, his approval rating with black voters has dropped to a startling 93.6%. >> they go on to talk about things that would still leave black voters backing this president, even if he put christian on his dream team and that kind of stuff. it's funny, also great to see kerrie washington hosting on a show that had trouble hiring black women. a lot of issues aired out that night. they got the numbers a little wrong. speak to the fact when you compare this president's support among black voters, it's actually not different from where clinton was in the same point in his term in '97, both in the low 80s, 81% this week from gallup. and 85% from him recently. perry, is there a desire to jump to the idea of racial solid dart when it has to do with the long term relationship with the republican party? >> we're looking at 2016 or 2013, any election, african-a
. president obama has given repeated assurances about americans being able to keep current plans if they're happy with those plans under the affordable health care act and speeches going back as far as four years ago. listen. >> if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under the reform proposals that we put forward. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. if you like the plan you have, you can keep it. if you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too. we will keep promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan period. if you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. if you've got health insurance you like your doctor, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. >> well, it hasn't really worked out like that not exactly anyway. joe johns joining us from washington. but like a lot of things,
a words, accountability, apology and one is inappropriate. the first official obama care apology came today. someone being accountable. here it is. >> i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. i want to assure you that health can and will be fixed. >> that was the chief marilyn taverner. people are saying shouldn't someone else be saying apologies? >> this is such a washington game, right? spicer talks about, there is no accountability. nobody is taking responsibility. you saw the head of cms in that video take responsibility and apologize for it today. the president has acknowledged that there were problems. secretary sebelius has acknowledged there were problems. the washington game of parsing who is saying what when, i think irrelevant to what the situation is. there is a webb. it is helping thousands upon thousands of people get health care. it has some problems getting fixed and it will be a long term solution to the health care crisis in this country. >> that's the problem. >> there should be accountability and there is. and i'm be
are true. either president obama was being entirely dishonest to the american public when he made those repeated promises, those repeated guarantees, or he was totally disengaged from the process, did not have a clue what was in his own health care plan or did not understand the incredibly negative consequences of that health care plan. which brings me to my bill. the reason that president obama claims, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, is that within the health care bi bill, there actual ily is a grandfather clause. and the first two paragraphs of that grandfather clause actually would work. the problem is those first two paragraphs or sections are followed by an evisceration of the grandfather clause. so basic what will you have is you have a phony grandfather clause contained within the patient protection and affordable care act. well, my piece of legislation, the "if you like your health plan you can keep it act," actually is a real grandfather clause, and it uses president obama's exact language. so all my bill does is just simply strikes the phony grandfather cla
up a visual here. a chart of the so-called winners and losers under obama care and a loser is being described as someone who might have to buy a slightly more expensive plan but will also have more benefits to it. there's only 3% that come into that category. 80% the big section of it unaffected. largely people who will have employer plans preserved as is. there are 14% clear winners under this currently completely uninsured people who will gain access to health care they would not have had. there's a group of no real consequences at all about 3%. so this is the -- the 80% there is basically the group that the president was talking about when he was campaigning for this saying if you like your health insurance you can keep it. i want to you talk about the journalistic responsibilities in going into these stories and presenting these people as witnesses against the affordable care act. >> well, frankly, it's been pretty demoralizing to me to see these people who are basically innocent. there's a lady in winter haven, florida, trotted around by a lot of tv shows who is supposedly also
or not some of the people who are accused of being militants are militants or terrorists or would be terrorists is not at all clear to people. the second issue that president obama himself said there should be an immanent threat to the united states. i think there is a real question as to whether some of the people who are being killed through these drone strikes actually posed an immanent threat to the united states. >> how concerned should the u.s. be about international law? what kind of precedent does it set if the u.s. are doing these drone strikes. >> i think the u.s. and other countries should be concerned because the price of entry in the drone market, as it were, is not very high. many countries are going to be acquiring drone technologies and these will be increasingly used in cross-border situations. it is very critical that there be a better international understanding an agreement on what constitutes the right of a country to go across the border to protect itself. and what pressure can the international community put on those countries that harbor terrorism militants
opinion president obama should have known that for example, angela merkel, her phone was being tapped by the nsa. very typically with very sensitive intelligence operations, those operations are signed off by the most senior people in the country. the state leaders. so either obama knew about this or he didn't. and if he didn't, of course, then that means the question about his oversight of the nsa. >> and i think we're unlikely to find out when the two big american spy catchers go before congress, any more about that. let me ask you this one thing. does this mean america thinks it's more important when it comes to keeping its people safe or other countries around the world or are they just as protective of their data and just as likely as to be spying on other people as well? >> other countries have national self interest and it would be that element within their opportunities. they saw some extremely serious threats, threats from terrorism, rogue states, wars, proliferation, major organized crime. and they work extremely closely with other intelligence -- >> i'm going ohave to say n
insurance policies are being cancelled under obama care. in the past couple of months, blue shield of california 119,000 and kaiser permanente and hundred and 60,000. they applied to individual policies purchases the affordable care act was signed in 2010. consumer advocates say in some cases these were junk policies that did it cost much but didn't cover much either. under the new law, all plans will have to include at least in basic services such prescription drugs, mental health services and maternity care. we will be right back. and coming up our tech report with gate slate. and for the kron4 tech report with kate slate. >>: the morning. twitter just added a new feature that has a lot of users of sat to treat this woman just got in big trouble for wearing of google glass and amazon has alleged a great new program that makes it easy to give to charity. here's a look. twitter just added eight model preview. pictures and videos that people you follow will show up in your twitter feet as a visual preview. before you would have to click on the media like to see the picture are video
. brightest minds from top technology companies are being brought in to help fix the site. the obama administration is recruiting to help fix the exchange. they are arriving just in time here. the announcement came thursday after the site had been down for a day and a half. >> tech companies are joining the angry chorus denouncing n.s.a. spying. senators got a letter saying the business med dolls were threatened. the firm's leader favor a key part of the bill that would distance the industry from n.s.a. tactics, saying: >> for the first time an administration official is saying the n.s.a. overreached, john kerry speaking today admitted that the surveillance was out of bounds, saying: >> kerry said reports of n.s.a. spying on millions of americans are not true and praised the agency, claiming that it had prevented terrorist attacks. >> indonesian foreign minister said his country is deeply concerned about spying at embassies there. new reports say the consulates were used to collect electronic data. the foreign minister is asking the u.s. and australia to explain. >> the fact that we
, everybody. we asked and you answered, the question being should president obama have swapped out vice president biden for hillary clinton. no, biden has been the go to guy for dealing with the senate for the administration. no, although i love hillary, she will get her turn in 2016 and she will win. potus made the right call. hillary has plenty of career left. keep it coming on twitter and facebook. if it's friday, it's time to go and do, the spotlight on lives trying to improve others, at risk girls in new hampshire and new england, just how strong they are. for more than a decade girls at work has been putting power tools in their hand and teaching them woodworking skills. elaine, great to have you here. you're a general contractor by trade. explain how you got this idea to pass down a skill set like this to young girls. >> i think it sort of originated, i had taken a neighbor in many years ago. i needed to sign her up for summer camp. at the time as a struggling contractor, i couldn't afford the fee. so an exchange ended up i was offered a chance to teach working in a summer camp.
to the benefit of everybody if he is willing to take that step. obama said there should be a new election law and iraqi. what should that be? >> there is a dispute right now and primee kurds minister nouri al-maliki and people in parliament over whether he should have elections by in the visual province, with winner take all per province, or country wide. so if kurds have 19% countrywide, they will have 20% of the seats in parliament. that is a struggle. >> even if the prime minister invited more sunnis into the government, would that be taken seriously? >> i think so. the sunnis are split on whether to work with nouri al-maliki, joint out, or whether to extremist factions like al qaeda. the more he does and the more the parliament does and the more the shia and kurds due to bring in the sunni minority, what we have seen in the past is the more they will stand up against the terrorist. >> when you look at the enormous cost to the u.s., you know that better than anyone in terms of dollars, in terms of the region, in terms of u.s. lives, iraqi , is it similar to the 2003 invasion? >> i get this
are they being straight and honest with you from the obama administration? it is not too over the top. i shouldn't have to do this. i shouldn't have to make these kind of threats. they should provide in a responsible way those who lived through benghazi to be interviewed separate and thea administration to find out what happened before during and after and i am so sad to say to the families this is the anniversary of the election, a year later the congress really doesn't know anything what happened in benghazi from those who lived through it. >> we are talking about someone like jay johnson, who is the president's nominee to be the new secretary of homeland security or as you can see janet yellen, the new chair of the federal reserve. big jump up. question: how long are you prepared to hold up their nominations and everyone else's, people who are going to be doing and need to do important work for the country? >> the only way this will work is if my republican colleagues get behind me and say to my democratic friend in the senate and the administration we support lindsay's request to be able to
motive. maybe he's trying to help christie. get it out ahead of time. >> in terms of the obama white house, they want to continue being vindictive and leaks, it's i would be happy. next time, bill clinton and president obama play golf, whichever each one -- whatever they each say when they -- >> i don't think there will be a next time. but there is also a 2016 manifestation to this. a democrat said something, hillary is probably going to run and if she does, the tension between the obama and clinton camps is still there, you know. president obama and secretary clinton have managed to become friends and have a good working relationship, but president obama and president clinton having this anecdote, i can take him in doses, that's not helpful, john. i can only speak to what i experienced with him and president clinton, and i know that obviously when they first got to the white house, you know, things could have been strained from the campaign but i saw them get along quite well and when they were working, you know, they consulted together on the speech he ga
why we defended these programs than having given them up and having our nation or our allies being attacked. >> reporter: the pressure on the obama administration over the secret programs continues to grow. one small bit of vindication. over the last week, outrage in france and spain after the reports say that nsa swept up millions of phone calls in those countries them nsa director confirmed the report in the "wall street journal" that it was actually french and spanish intelligence agencies that did the surveillance and passed it on to the nsa. >> we need to look at and make sure that we are not just gathering intelligence because we can but gathering it because we need it. >> the intelligence officials told congress yesterday allies spy on each other. it's part of the business. but the damage from these weeks has been done. john and diana. >> karen travers, thank you. >>> just across the potomac at arlington national cemetery there was a solemn ceremony. the eternal flame at kennedy's gravesite was reignited. new gas lines were installed. the anniversary of kennedy's assassinati
have to stop being, quote, the stupid party. you also say they have to stop being just aboutñrsys ei anti-obama. that is not enough. is that the problem with the g.o.p. here in washington? >> absolutely. i think you look at the dysfunction in washington, d.c., i think folks across the country -- republicans, independents, democrats -- are frustrated. we as a party can't just be a party of no. the only place you see conservative principles applied today are in state capitalsñr or local ther it'sts, u school choice, lowering the unemployment rate, growing the private sector, here in louisiana we're setting records for the number of people working. you're seeing that in 30 states across the country led by republican governors. we need to show voters conservative principles work. to see them working, you don't need to look farther than our state capitals. >> you have started something calledÑi america next to try to come up with an affirmatiwg conservative agenda for the nation's problems. given how poorly republicans did in the 2012 election, whether it was with hispanics or young peo
in 2012 promoting the fact that he modeled obama care after massachusetts health care plan. now massachusetts and vermont are talking about getting rid of the national health care system by creating their own single payer systems. at least it's being discussed. joining us now radio talk show host and columnist at the boston herald michael graham with an insider perspective. we have heard it in the massachusetts legislature as now senator jamie eldridge, a democrat, testified that he believes they should implement a universal medicare plan in massachusetts. that's single payer. that's what many people believe obama care would lead to on the federal level. what say you? >> well, it's funny. he's a great guy. he voted for romney care, supports obama care. then you do the math and he says all i wanted was single payer in the first place. that's what obama care supporters default to. they are watching the system collapse and the math doesn't work. in massachusetts we are the most expensive state in the country. want to be more expensive? be like us. it's 60 to 120 days for your first
by bob franken in d.c.. thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let's talk about some of the poll numbers. president obama's approval ratings now at an all-time low. so what do you think the biggest reasons are for this and what needs to happen for his numbers to stop falling? >> i think what needs to happen is that his signature policy achievement of his administration, that is to say b obama care, rights itself. i think this is a reaction to his roller coaster ride in the polls. it was probably much higher, in fact i know it was much hire after he put the republicans in their place in the recent budget negotiations. but he's had a real up and down second term and now i think he's on a downward roll. >> another interesting finding from the poll, 63% of those polled want to replace their own member of congress, that's the highest percentage ever recorded. so do you think that means that we'll see a lot of turnover in 2014? >> well, it could mean that if it was sustained. i think however that people are sort of helping incumbents, particularly republicans are helped when obama care
people. thank you, "saturday night live," for being honest. you've got something here that is real. i thought it was a very funny impression. >> if you take the line that president obama repeated, which is if you like your health care plan, if you like your doctor, you can keep it. when that turns out for most people to be not true, do you think that -- does that undermine the entire law or do you think they can turn this around? they say it will be working by november 30th. >> that's just one of the things that aren't true about the obama care law. the most important to me was they promised it was going to be $890 billion. it's now up to $1.8 trillion. if this continues, if people, a, can't sign up, or, b, don't want to sign up because it's too expensive, we're seeing that. young people say it's just cheaper for me to take this tax. think about that for a second. if that continues at this pace, it could be a $3 trillion or $4 trillion expense to the american people. he said you can keep your interest. they lied about so many things. to get this thing passed. from top to bottom. they
that president obama was not aware chancellor merkel's communications were being collected since 2002. that is a big problem." she also says she wasn't briefed either and is calling for a total review of all intelligence programs. others are being no less blunt and the white house is in deep damage control mode right now. our chief national security reporter and jim acosta is joining us now. jim, first to you, a tough statement from the chairman, dianne feinstein. what is the white house reaction? >> the white house reaction in part, wolf, is that the senator is correct that the president did not know about this foreign surveillance program aimed at world leaders. but they are taking issue, wolf, with one thing that the senator did say in that statement and that these collection activities aimed at foreign leaders will not continue. i talked to a senior administration official earlier this evening who says that part of the statement is inaccurate. they are being changed on that basis. and in large part these policies and programs are continuing for the time being while all of this is
else to run. the administration is finally being forced to answer tough questions about the disastrous obama care rollout. tonight, we're going to be joined by a very outspoken studio audience, and they will ask about the explosive testimony on capitol hill and much more. >> let the grilling begin. >> i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. >> the officials responsible for the disastrous obama care rollout face the music on capitol hill. >> you're saying the system right now is working? >> i'm saying it is working. it is just not working at the speed that we want. >> it was all one big lie. >> if you like your plan and you like your doctor you wouldn't have to do a thing. >> a new report proves that the administration knew that millions of americans would lose their insurance all along. >> you keep your plan, you keep your doctor. >> and our week-long series on the missed obama care warning signs continues. >> no matter how you look at this, health care costs are going to increase. >> so what do people really know about obama care? >> think affo

, almost breeds the type of generally contrarian nature young people have by virtue of being young. >> right. the obama administration i studying whatever way it can use to reach these young people, because the problem is, if the only people who are signing up for obamacare are older, are less healthy, that is going to send premium rates going upward unless a corresponding number of younger and healthier people sign up who won't actually be buying that much health care. so the administration is studying ways to sign these people up. as far as medicaid is concerned, the states have found more creative ways to actually reach them. for example, oregon, there are 250,000 people who are on food stamps in oregon. the state of oregon has got in touch with every single one of them saying, you can sign up for expanded medicaid coverage under obamacare and they've got an whole lot of them to do that. that's one way they're reaching and get these medicaid patients who are easier to reach than the invincibles, youth, who have not signed up for obamacare yet. >> thank you. from a broken web sit

out the absurdity of obama care. you know, we're talking about health care plans being canceled. i'm hearing from many of my constituents that they're canceled, that their plans are being canceled as a result of the affordable care act coming in a letter form and that they're going to have to get other coverage and oh, by the way, now their coverage is going to be 127% more or 400% more in costs. that is unacceptable. so the question i have is why are those premiums going up so much? and the answer is because they're forcing americans to buy parts of health care coverage that no one will ever need. why would a male age 32 and single need to have maternity coverage? why does a couple that are age 60 who have raised their children have to have coverage for pediatric? this is why the affordable care act is so expensive, and it's time that the american people understand that these are all pieces and parts of the affordable care act that they're being forced to purchase. >> now, you've said that people in your district are looking at their premiums rising by as much as 669%. why so much
